The Mants - The M.A.N.T. from U.N.C.L.E.
The Mants The M.A.N.T. from U.N.C.L.E. 7" + bonus 7" (Lance Rock, 1997)
Hello Canada! Here ya go: :1/2 man, 1/2 ant, all asshole" The MANTS! These critters eluded me for quite a while. I had heard of them but until I scored this gem a couple years back, I had just heard the hype. Great that they lived up to it. (Mostly) instrumental Mummies style garage punk is what you get here. Loud, raw, and loud. Not sure how many copies came with the bonus but mine did. Friend to None and Bow to Your Masters come of the MANT from UNCLE. The Creeper is from the bonus.
The Mants were pretty cool. All three singles are worth owning, but the hit is the one on Rotoflex, if you ask me.
It's a good record though.
